There are books that talk about motivation in life and how to push through boundaries and limits. Those resources are indeed helpful for most people. But what about the Bible? Does it teach us to be motivated?

A motivation is a driving force that propels you forward even when circumstances are against you. It is the goal you want to reach, the target you want to hit, or the person you want to please. For a Christian, the ultimate motivation should be none other than our Lord Jesus Christ.

The New Testament mentions Christ as a goal several times. Why? If we can just take a small sample from the life of Jesus, we would be challenged and encouraged how He handled all of the problems properly. That is why Christ should remain our top motivation in this race we are running.
